Laura is a Bristol based artist working from a studio space in BV Studios, Bedminster.

Whether inspired by the human body, carnival, mysticism or old fashioned botanical, wildlife and scientific illustration; her artwork features finely detailed drawings produced almost exclusively with watercolour and pencil.

Laura studied Illustration at Plymouth University followed by an MA at Falmouth University.  This study has nurtured and expanded the self-directed aspect of her illustration practice and encouraged a strong knowledge of the subject matter that develops within a piece of work. 

Upon completion of her MA Laura was awarded the Graphic Literature Prize by publishing house Atlantic Press and her work was published as a limited run of artist’s books entitled [phantom]: an exploration of the female body, narrative and pattern making.
